Program Information

School:Northeastern University - Graduate Programs
Faculty:School of Law
Degree:Master; Online
Field of Study:Legal Studies, General
Description:The Master of Legal Studies curriculum was developed specifically to provide working, non-lawyer professionals with the skills necessary to understand, navigate and leverage legal issues that may arise across highly regulated industries. The program helps these professionals work effectively with counsel when a lawyer’s involvement is necessary and work independently when a lawyer isn’t required. Through foundational and core courses, students will be introduced to a broad understanding of the law, followed by a focus on legal issues in specific industries through elective courses. Given the significant role of legal principles in the health, business and the human resources fields, we offer concentrations in Health Law, Business Law and Human Resources Law. Students can also complete a general track and choose their own electives. Each student will have the opportunity to engage with a dedicated advising team, as well as a career coach, to ensure the curriculum matches their individual passions and career goals.
